    CLWFWFD:

    Glad to see your administration recognizes the advantages of wearing shorts in the Texas heat. Maybe they can call down here and convince ours.

      We are aloud to wear shorts if the temperature is above 85 degrees and if the humidity warrants it! All outside activites are stopped. It doesn't happen much in Portland Maine, maybe 3 or 4 times a summer. Hopefully this info is helpful. I can get the protocal if someone needs particulars. Let me know!

          My own personal "opinion" is that they look pretty tacky and unprofessional.

          I am also in Florida and we do not wear them but in my second job I travel to Fire Departments that do. I see guys in shorts with knee high white socks or faded color socks... It just is so unprofessional in my opinion.....

            For those who work for FDs that allow shorts, could you please email me? I would like to get some letters from Chiefs that allow shorts, so I have some material to back up my reasons for the shorts. I have seen FDNY and other FDs with shorts and do not feel they look tacky. If they help to keep us cool and allow us to work longer, they seem to be well worth it. Thanks!!!
